December 9, 2011 Just got three “why?”s in a row from my 2.5 year old daughter. This gets worse before it gets better, doesn’t it? View on Twitter · View on Facebook
@alexkingorg the trick, when they get to be 6 or 7 or so is to turn it back into a question for her. “what do you think?”
@alexkingorg or even better – how would you find out?
@alexkingorg When each of our kids were three, we wanted the “terrible twos” back. That’s probably not what you wanted to hear, is it?
@alexkingorg why do you want to know? And YES it does
@alexkingorg it’s a phase 🙂
All you need to do is wait for the next one.
Yes-for about a year, then they become the sweetest, helpful, doers for about 5 years. Then all bets are off! Enjoy it all, before you know it you’ll be receiving daily death stares from an 11 year old “tween” who’s smarter than you, just as tall and nearly outweighs you (at least in my case :-).
@alexkingorg lol. I think I was that kid too. 😉
@alexkingorg She’s just learning how to do root-cause analysis. She’s more than halfway there! http://t.co/pqjluw13
@alexkingorg “why?” — http://t.co/FKEwpC5q
@alexkingorg Yes, it gets worse. Autumn now asks me to identify the names of all the characters in the background in her books.
I’ve been fearing this very phase, since I’m having a daughter in a couple months. I had an epiphany though.
Siri can answer all of our kid’s questions, and not get annoyed. She may save us from many many headaches.
